What drew you to data science?
Applied statistics has always been interesting to me and has been a powerful tool in my career. Secondly, I've always had a love for computer science and programming, even though it was a field in which I had very little prior knowledge. I've decided now is the time in my life to become a part of not only an exciting field but a community that will be growing for decades to come. I love Data Science because it combines several things that I've always wanted to learn on a higher level: statistics, programming, and advanced topics in computer science like machine learning.
